Under the EPCI contract, Wood will upgrade the MEG (mono-ethylene glycol) regeneration handling capacity at the Kollsnes gas processing plant where Equinor is the technical service provider. Three new modules will be installed at the plant, including a MEG train, a chiller package and a MEG export pump.

'The project will help maintain high regularity and maximum capacity at the plant in a long-term perspective and will further strengthen the work environment and safety in MEG handling at Kollsnes. I am also pleased that this will increase activity at Kollsnes, which is important to the region,' says Bjarte Padøy, plant manager at Kollsnes.

The value of the fixed part of the contract is estimated at about NOK 400 million. The contract includes options for potential future work.

The contract work will start up in September 2020 with installation and completion at Kollsnes during 2022/23.

The contract is expected to result in approx. 150 man-years during the project’s life. Management and engineering will be performed by Wood’s office in Sandefjord, with support from the company’s global organisation.

The fabrication and construction work is subcontracted to Kværner and will take place at the Stord yard. Kværner will also perform the installation work at Kollsnes.
